Fascial Release Therapy, Myofascial Release Physiopedia, Myofascial Release Lower Back

Myofascial release is a deep tissue massage technique used to improve myofascial mobility and relieve pain in the musculoskeletal system. Myofascial connective tissue covers muscle, bone, ligaments, and tendons and is located under the skin. Injury, overuse, and inactivity can cause soft tissue restrictions in the body, resulting in pain, discomfort, and decreased blood flow. Myofascial release is a gradual but successful procedure for alleviating fascia restrictions symptoms. Myofascial release is used by massage therapists at TheracureĀ to treat a variety of conditions.

What is myofascial release?

Myofascial release massage is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat skeletal muscle pain and immobility. Gentle pressure is applied to connective tissue and fascia during myofascial release. Fascia is a connective tissue structure that surrounds muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. In a stable state, fascia tissue is relaxed and wavy in appearance. The fascial system can provide cushioning support, allowing for greater mobility while eliminating pain. A myofascial release procedure aids in the detection of restraints and the release of fascia. Injury, surgery, improper posture, or tissue inflammation may all cause myofascial limitations, which cause pressure and pain on delicate structures.


When is myofascial release used?

Myofascial release is a massage technique that is used to:

  • Treat acute Pain
  • Treat post injury
  • Treat post-surgery
  • Produce relaxation

Myofascial release aids in the reduction of pain. Myofascial release is used to relieve painfulĀ areas by breaking down restraints and releasing tightness. Myofascial release enhances blood flow and soft tissue temperature, which can further relieve pain.

Myofascial release aids in the release of restrictive tissues such as scar tissue. Scar tissue may form as part of the normal healing process after an injury. Scar tissue can obstruct fascia movement and cause pain. Myofascial release helps to relax scar tissue and restore normal tissue function.

Myofascial release is commonly used as a relaxation technique. Myofascial release is performed in a slow and precise way. The slow movements of myofascial release across the skin can stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system. The nervous system controls emotions and produces feelings of calmness.

What are the benefits of myofascial release?

There are many benefits of myofascial release. The benefits of myofascial release are:

Myofascial release helps reduce pain. Myofascial pain can be caused by myofascial trigger points. Trigger points are hyperirritable points located in soft tissues. Myofascial pain causes discomfort and affects range of movement in the muscles. Myofascial release helps decrease pain by releasing trigger points. Myofascial release loosens restrictions and improves circulation.

One benefit of myofascial release is decreased tension in the fascial tissue. Tension in the tissue becomes a restrictive barrier and can cause tightness and pain. Direct myofascial release helps relieve obstructions and adhesions in the muscle and fascial tissues. Myofascial release stretches and elongates fascia and helps mobilise adhered tissue.

Myofascial release helps increase movement. Following injury, fascial tissue and muscles may shorten and begin to restrict joint movement and blood flow. The techniques used in myofascial release break down fascial adhesions and relax muscle tension helping to regain range of movement around a joint.
